Stefan Sagmeister, The Happy Show
A fascinating project by Stefan Sagmeister, combining research from a collection of social data from psychologists, anthropologists and several prominent historians he attempted to discover how and what makes someone happy and what can trigger happiness.
He combined research data with typography to produce a short documentary “The Happy Film”. Stefan is also exhibiting his work at a few venues - Currently at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia and will later travel to the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.
While the film is unfinished it is a result of a several years, reading and reflection. According to the New York Times, Sagmeister sent sausages as the invitation to the exhibition.
Because, when you get down to it, it seems that the two things that lead most quickly and reliably to happiness are having sex and eating rich, fatty foods.
